General Information

Kisiwa House has been in the same family for generations. It has recently been renovated into a luxury boutique hotel. The property was amongst one of the first buildings in Stone Town. It was built during the reign of the greatest 19th century Sultan of Oman, Said ibn Sultan, who made Zanzibar his main place of residence in 1837.

Indulge in the immaculate opulence and comfort Kisiwa House has to offer. Designed to be sumptuous and to reflect a distinct Swahili style the rooms are luxurious and spacious. The interiors are sleek and clean lines speak of sophistication, while the lustrous colours and textiles invite relaxation and evoke romance.

There are eleven rooms and suites all offering a decidedly romantic and enchanting Swahili feel. Choose from the sumptuous Burdani deluxe rooms, Malkia junior suites or Sulaima senior suites. The hotel is faithfully restored and lavishly embellished with a private collection of antique furniture, brass fixtures, persian rugs and original photographs.


Kisiwa House is superbly located on a quiet street in the heart of historical Stone Town. It is within easy walking distance of famous landmarks, museums, antique shops and restaurants.
